Piran

Roka are in your itinerary. Step out of Piran with an excursion to Lipica Stud Farm in Lipica--about 50 minutes away. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Portorož Beach, walk around Strunjan Nature Reserve, immerse yourself in nature at Debeli Rtič Landscape Park, and don't miss a visit to Walls of Piran.
